You will love this beautiful gulf front home off of C-30 on Gulf
Pines Drive between Cape Sand Blas and Indian Pass. Gulf Pines is
one of the most prestigious subdivisions and private subdivisions in
the Cape San Blas area. There is a nice wide beach right in front
of the house.
After owning the original house for 18 years in 2003 we completed a
2000 Sq. Ft. two story addition and renovation of the original
structure making it a 3200 Sq. Ft. home with the goal for hosting
large groups such as a family reunion. The house has plenty of
common space inside and out and extra large bedrooms to handle a
large number of people comfortably. The goal was to make the house
very functional and comfortable. It is tastefully furnished with
brand new furniture featuring 2 kings, 2 queens, 1 bunk set, 1
sleeper sofa, and 1 futon.
This house offers 1600 feet of great room living space between two
great rooms and three different decks offering 1700 sq ft of deck
space. The main floor great room opens up onto 15x42 ft porch half
of which is fully covered. The leather couches & chairs and oak
dining room set with 6 oak bar stools around the pennisula kitchen
counter/sink make this a very comfortable main great room. The
kitchen is part of this great room and this is generally where the
action is for the adults.
The second floor great room is one of the reasons we built the
addition. We have lots of kids, nieces, nephews and friends. The
great room has fantatic views of the beach. The second floor is
above the roof of the original house and has commanding views of
gulf. From this room and the 10x42 ft covered deck that is accessed
by 3 sliding glass doors you can see St. Vincent's Island, Cape San
Blas Pt. (and light house) and on clear days St. George Island which
is approximately 20 miles away. During the heat of the day this
upstairs great room is ideal for kids. Complete with TV and stero
which has out two indoor and two out door speakers, the kids can
play cards or board games, listen to music or just relax on the deck
and enjoy the views. As you can see the two great rooms allow there
to be some space for kids and adults.
In the evening as the sun sets this is a favorite spot for happy
hour (for the adults). The second story which is equipped with a
microwave, mini fridge, wet bar area, dish washer, bin ice maker and
twenty feet of counter space with cabinets. It has a bunk bed, a
queen sleeper sofa and a futon couch providing additional sleeping
space for large families or multiple families vacationing together.
There are four extra large bedrooms on the main floor each with
their own full bath. Each room has a large 6x5 ft window. Each
bedroom is decorated in a different theme. The 'light house' room
has a sliding glass door onto the deck ocean side. The king size
oak bed makes for a very comfortable night's sleep.
The 'sand dollar' room also has a sliding glass door onto the main
deck. Decorated in sand dollars and with a queen bed this room is
wonderful to wake up in.
The 'Key West' room is surrounded on two sides by a veranda and has
beautiful wood and glass french doors that open up on the
veranda and allow for nice breezes to blow through. This room has a
queen bed and a trundle bed/couch in the sitting area, and a TV/VCR
is also part of this suite. This room is part of the new addition
and has 10 ft ceilings.
The 'sail boat' room is also part of the new addition and also has
10 Ft. ceilings. The room is furnished with a beautiful dark wood
king bed. The room is exceptionally quiet and the shades block 100%
of the light when drawn allowing those who like to sleep late to do
so. The room is equiped with a TV/VCR.

Had another wonderful Spring Break with 4 generations visiting.
Very spacious and so close to the water. Lots of deck space for everyone to find a spot. Lots of wildlife.
Wow - that sounds like a great trip with 4 generations there! Hope you can come back and visit again!!
Spring Break fun!
It was very well laid out for us. It was me, husband, 21-year old daughter, 17-year old son, my parents and husband's mother. We enjoyed exploring the area, deep-sea fishing, surf fishing and bonfires on the beach. Puzzle was set up on the small table and the large table was for meals and evening games. The beach was wide, clean and not crowded at all. Pristine Properties was great in delivery of our beach chairs, umbrella and cart.
The outdoor shower was private, the fish cleaning table was great, the big porch with cover was perfect to hide from the sun, but still enjoy the gulf breezes, bedrooms were spacious and kitchen was well equipped.
We look forward to returning one-day, hopefully soon.
Sounds like you had a great time, Kelly! Hope you got to grill out a lot. Thanks for your feedback and hope you get to visit again soon!
Absolutely our favorite vacation spot!!
We have been staying at this particular property for the past 30 years. The update/addition has allow us to continue to stay along with our increased family size. The beach is pristine and the solitude makes for a true vacation! The house is open and the view spectacular. Lots of room. We like to stay close to the property but there is plenty to do within a 15 minute drive.
Thanks Maureen! We hope you and your family can come back and enjoy the beach again soon!
